Once upon a time when common people actually made progress they had leaders... real leaders. Now we have Bob Bratinas, Rob Fords, Steven Harpers.

Could a mayor be a leader, of course. Is our mayor a leader? HELL NO! As for who in the community could be the type of leader we need? Probably no one.

Also, the mayor doesn't need power over the councillors, by being popular with the constituents there is power over the councillors. A councillor picking fights with a popular mayor will be worrying about his future next election... and reelection is the name of the game, nothing else matters as much to councillors. Nothing.

Sheesh, so cynical eh???? Okay, I'm going to try to be more positive for the rest of my day : )
